Cameron School District cancels classes due to Coronavirus
Cameron School District students may not return to school until after Easter with mounting concerns regarding Coronavirus.
During Monday’s Cameron School Board meeting, Cameron Superintendent Matt Robinson announced the district’s impending plan to cancel classes until mid-April in order to stave off any outbreak of the Coronavirus.
“Four weeks is probably the minimum. With eight weeks, it only gives us a week of school left. I’m not sure what we can get out of one week of school if we were to come back. We still don’t know, if we stay out of school for a while, what happens with that M.A.P. testing.” Robinson said. “What happens to end of course testing? What happens to the kid who needs that end of course testing or he might not graduate? There are certain requirements kids have to have and that might not get done … If we are going to do this, and try to beat the odds, then it will probably be until after Easter.”
